DEPUTY GENERAL MANAGER
DEPUTY GENERAL MANAGER – The Spires
ABOUT THE ROLE
As Deputy General Manager (Clinical) of this brand new Barchester care home, you’ll instil the ethos of person-centred care and support that sets us apart. Opening this summer in Lichfield, Staffordshire, The Spires Care Home has been specifically designed to provide quality residential care to older people and those living with dementia. Located close to Lichfield city centre The Spires will provide a warm, homely and friendly environment for 70 residents. Its dedicated Memory Lane community, which supports residents with dementia, will offer everything from a sensory garden through to activity kitchens. This is your opportunity to help make this first-class home a success from day one.
Working closely with the General Manager and taking on leadership duties in their absence, as a Deputy General Manager you’ll help to set the highest care standards and inspire a multidisciplinary team to focus on giving every resident the best possible quality of life. That means leading by example and monitoring standards through regular audits, supervised clinical practice and checking our regulatory compliance. You’ll draw on your leadership and clinical skills to develop and deliver strategies that will help you achieve your goals, and ours.
To join us as a Deputy General Manager, you’ll need be a Registered Nurse (RN/RMN) with current NMC registration and a teaching, mentoring or supervision qualification. Experience in helping residents with different health needs is important too, as is a successful track record of managing safeguarding investigations and clinical risk assessments. We’ll also look for some HR experience, a strong knowledge of sales and marketing and an understanding of budget management. Finally, you’ll be compassionate, resilient and determined to deliver quality care in our engaging and energetic environment.
As well as a competitive salary, Barchester offers one of the best rewards packages in the care sector. Your generous benefits would include:
Free learning and development
Automatic enrolment into our profit share scheme
Access to childcare vouchers
A range of holiday, retail and leisure discounts
Nurse Mentor and Refer a Friend bonus schemes
Offer to pay Tier 2 visa application fee for eligible nurses
If you’d like to use your clinical and people skills in an organisation that provides the quality care you’d expect for your loved ones, this is a rewarding and empowering place to be.
